roon arc

Just announced today is Roon ARC, a new app for Android and iOS that allows streaming outside your home network! That’s a huge feature, and one that I’m sure will pay huge dividends for the company as having your music “on the go” was one of two features missing from Roon. (The other? Yes, it’s the ability to add your own reviews, bios, etc.).

I first updated my core, desktop, etc. to Roon 2.0, and then downloaded Roon ARC to my cell phone. I next opened the desktop application to configure Settings>Roon ARC. Before this connected, I had to open the following firewall port in UFW on Ubuntu box (see above, looks like it’s configurable):

sudo ufw allow 40229/tcp comment roonarc

I then cut wifi on my phone and guess what, I’m streaming! Now Roon, please add ARC to the Microsoft Store so I can get it on my Surface Go when I travel.
